Sorry, but I just cannot follow most of what you wrote.

I asked a couple of specific questions. Most importantly:
- why is it essential that @alt and @longdesc be retained if <img> is
- why must a replacement (like <alt>) have a short and long descriptor form.

I cannot discover an answer to those two essential questions. Possibly I'm
not looking hard enough, but really, responding in the form that you do makes
it a *lot* of work to figure out where you are responding to what. Perhaps
Jaws makes it impossible to produce 'standard' email? If it's not possible,
I'll do my best to try to handle it. But it would be *so* much easier to
communicate in the 'standard' form (meaning: "quote only as much as
absolutely necessary to provide content (or alternatively, supply short
summaries instead), and place the response directly beneath that.")
